Went there because Legens was hosting a private affair. Walk in a seat yourself... We did that for about 45 minutes without even acknowledgement of our presence. no server, no water, no menu, no nothing...After the 45 minutes we got up to leave. The woman behind us asked how long we had been seated. Said she was there for over... More

Don't go! Basement restaurant with dartboard TVs everywhere and pool table! Burgers and steak sandwich ordered - basic cheap food. Atmosphere terrible. This does not compliment the hotel at all and they should consider their offer of restaurants carefully. We went across to the Posthouse hotel and if they could offer half as good a meal as they do they... More

This is another restaurant within Lake Louise Inn Hotel. It is designed to be an adult alternative to the family friendly restaurant upstairs. It has a more Pub feel to it which is quite nice. The food was a good size, well cooked and good value for the money. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive and we enjoyed the... More

This food outlet in Lake Louise Inn replicates a pub environment. Despite this the food is good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good quality and well-prepared and presented. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

Unbelievably poor service and quality of food here. Stay away at all costs for the good of your health! Myself and my partner called in here for a meal on Friday 12th August at 20.30. The waitress came and took our drinks order and starter and main meal order and then it went downhill from there. The drinks came and... More

Very basic pub and food but the waiter was very nice and even gave us a couple of beer samples. Given that the other restaurant on the premises had a huge line up and we were hungry and did not have many options in the area, we at least had some food.

This is the first time we eaten here and would go again if we were in the area. The surroundings are pleasant, the service very good and the food is well cooked, plentiful and not expensive, their poutine is very good. Parking may be a problem if you are not staying at the Inn. One of the better dining options... More

We had a great dinner and watched a bit of the hockey game and then we play shuffle board. Hardly ever find someplace with one. Had a great evening.

While staying at the Lake Louise Inn we decided to have some supper and tried this venue/pub. It is like a sports bar, which I am sure is good for groups and in the ski season, but not what you want for a relaxing meal. We did not stay and eat at the Timberwolf instead which was much better!
